SHAKOPEE, Minn. (AP) — Canterbury Park has canceled Thursday evening’s races because of severe thunderstorms moving through the Twin Cities.
The Shakopee track was soaked by rain earlier in the day and another storm is likely Thursday night.
Canterbury Park president Randy Sampson says in addition to lightning concerns, the storm could dump another inch or two of rain. He says that would complicate flooding on the grounds and surrounding roads.
Racing is set to resume Friday at 6:30 p.m.
